Torres carved out a glorious chance after 70 minutes when the Spaniard picked out Godin, who sent his effort over the crossbar from six-yards out.

The home side were awarded a penalty in stoppage time when Torres was brought down in the box. Gameiro stepped up and made no mistake from the spot,1-0.
However, Alaves clinched a point with a final kick of the game as Manu Garcia rifled home a superb effort from distance to ensure the newly promoted outfit earn a share of the spoils.
